Use on custom boards
« on: July 07, 2014, 05:59:15 PM »
I'm trying to use ExifTool on a custom TI board (DM365). I can work with this on regular desktops.

The thing is, I cannot install perl on the dev-board and it doesn't even have 'build essentials' to make things by itself. I can cross compile simple enough programs though.

Is there any potential solution to this? I can try out other methods, but doing it in pure C/C++ seems to be the only way.

If Perl isn't available then it would probably be easier to use a C++ EXIF library (ie. Exiv2) to do what you want, although you need to make sure that all of the libraries it uses are available for your platform.
